My main mathematical interests are in the fields of von Neumann algebras and operator spaces, as well as applications to noncommutative probability, with a focus on noncommutative Lp-spaces and inequalities for noncommutative martingales. I have also carried out research in classical potential theory.

Organizer of the Department colloquium and of the Harald Bohr Lectures.
